MINNEAPOLIS, October 16, 2007 – U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) today reported net income of $1,176 million for the third quarter of 2007, compared with $1,203 million for the third quarter of 2006. Diluted earnings per common share of $.67 in the third quarter of 2007 were higher than the same period of 2006 by 1.5 percent, or $.01 per diluted common share. Return on average assets and return on average common equity were 2.09 percent and 23.3 percent, respectively, for the third quarter of 2007, compared with returns of 2.23 percent and 23.6 percent, respectively, for the third quarter of 2006. U.S. Bancorp President and Chief Executive Officer Richard K. Davis said, “Despite the very challenging economic environment, our Company’s earnings remained solid, reflecting our core financial strength and emphasis on creating a business model that provides consistent and sustainable results. Our earnings per diluted common share of $.67 were higher than both the same quarter of 2006 and the prior quarter of 2007 by $.01 and $.02, respectively. Our profitability metrics remain among the best in the industry with return on average assets of 2.09 percent and return on average common equity of 23.3 percent.
  2. 2. U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 2 We were able to return 74 percent of our earnings to common shareholders in the form of dividends and buybacks during the quarter, which brought our year-to-date return of earnings to common shareholders to 117 percent. “The net interest margin in the third quarter of 3.44 percent was equal to the prior quarter, resulting in an increase in net interest income on both a linked quarter and year-over-year basis. This is an important turning point for us, as a stable net interest margin is a key component of our long-term growth assumptions. “Once again, our fee-based businesses exhibited excellent momentum year-over-year with Payment Services and Wealth Management and Securities Services recording increases in fee revenue of 11 percent and 9 percent, respectively. In addition, mortgage banking revenue, commercial products revenue and treasury management fees also showed very favorable increases over the third quarter of 2006. Although normal third quarter seasonality resulted in somewhat muted growth in total net revenue over the second quarter of 2007, we were able to achieve positive operating leverage on a linked quarter basis. “Our credit quality statistics, once again, demonstrated our prudent approach to risk management. Net charge-offs were .54 percent of average loans outstanding, compared with .53 percent in the previous quarter. As expected, total nonperforming assets did increase, reflecting stress in the mortgage banking and homebuilding industries. Looking ahead, we would expect that the continuing pressures felt by both businesses and consumers related to the residential mortgage and homebuilding industries will lead to somewhat higher net charge-offs and nonperforming assets. These increases should, however, be very manageable for our Company. “Going forward, we will continue to capitalize on our core financial strength, including our profitability, efficiency, prudent credit culture, capital management and customer service, while selectively investing for growth in our businesses. We are not immune to the challenges presented to us by the current environment, but our results for the quarter and year-to-date support my belief that our Company is well-positioned to produce a consistent, predictable and repeatable earnings stream for the benefit of our customers, communities, employees and shareholders.” The Company’s net income for the third quarter of 2007 declined from the same period of 2006 as strong fee-based revenue growth in Payment Services and Wealth Management and Securities Services was offset by higher operating expenses and an expected increase in credit costs. In addition, the third quarter of 2006 included a $32 million gain on the sale of equity interests in a card association. Diluted earnings per common share increased year-over-year by $.01 (1.5 percent). On a linked quarter basis, net income (MORE)
  3. 3. U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 3 increased $20 million, or $.02 per diluted common share, reflecting growth in net interest income and credit card and payment processing revenue and lower noninterest expense, partially offset by seasonally lower treasury management and trust and investment management fees and somewhat higher credit costs. Total net revenue on a taxable-equivalent basis for the third quarter of 2007 was $3,529 million, $108 million (3.2 percent) higher than the third quarter of 2006, primarily reflecting a 5.5 percent increase in noninterest income. Net interest income also increased slightly from a year ago driven by growth in earning assets. Noninterest income growth was driven primarily by organic business growth in fee-based revenue. This growth in noninterest income was muted somewhat by adverse market conditions experienced during the third quarter of 2007. These market factors reduced trading and other revenue by approximately $21 million from a year ago. Additionally, the third quarter of 2006 included a $32 million gain from the sale of equity interests in a card association. On a linked quarter basis, total net revenue increased $24 million (.7 percent) due to growth in net interest income and credit card and payment processing revenues offset by seasonally lower treasury management and trust and investment management fees and the adverse impact of market conditions in the third quarter of 2007. Total noninterest expense in the third quarter of 2007 was $1,628 million, $90 million (5.9 percent) higher than the third quarter of 2006, principally due to higher operating costs from investments in personnel, branches, customer service initiatives, marketing, business integration costs related to acquisitions, costs related to tax-advantaged investments and an increase in credit-related costs for other real estate owned and collection activities. On a linked quarter basis, total noninterest expense decreased by $12 million (.7 percent) primarily due to a reduction in incentives and seasonally lower employee benefits expense and lower operating costs related to merchant airline processing. Provision for credit losses for the third quarter of 2007 was $199 million, an increase of $8 million (4.2 percent) from the second quarter of 2007 and $64 million higher than the third quarter of 2006. The increase in the provision for credit losses from a year ago reflected growth in credit card accounts and higher commercial loan losses at this stage of the business cycle. In addition, the provision for credit losses in the third quarter of 2006 partially reflected the favorable residual impact on net charge-offs, principally for credit cards and other retail charge-offs, resulting from changes in bankruptcy laws in the fourth quarter of 2005. Net charge-offs in the third quarter of 2007 were $199 million, compared with the second quarter of 2007 net charge-offs of $191 million and the third quarter of 2006 net charge-offs of $135 million. Nonperforming assets increased $76 million (13.5 percent) during the third quarter of 2007. This increase (MORE)
  4. 4. U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 4 reflected stress in the mortgage lending and homebuilding industries and was primarily due to two mortgage banking customers that declared bankruptcy during the quarter and continued stress in construction lending. Total nonperforming assets were $641 million at September 30, 2007, compared with $565 million at June 30, 2007, and $575 million at September 30, 2006. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to nonperforming loans was 441 percent at September 30, 2007, compared with 503 percent at June 30, 2007, and 476 percent at September 30, 2006.

Average earning assets for the period increased over the third quarter of 2006 by $7.7 billion (4.1 percent), primarily driven by an increase of $6.0 billion (4.3 percent) in average loans. The positive impact to net interest income from the growth in earning assets was partially offset by a lower net interest margin. The net interest margin in the third quarter of 2007 was 3.44 percent, compared with 3.56 percent in the third quarter of 2006, reflecting the competitive environment and the impact of a flat yield curve during the past several quarters. Since the third quarter of 2006, credit spreads have tightened by approximately 5 basis points across most lending products due to competitive loan pricing. In addition, funding costs have increased as rates paid on (MORE)
  5. 5. U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 5 interest-bearing deposits have risen and the Company’s funding mix continues to shift toward higher cost deposits and other funding sources. Net interest margin was also impacted by a decline in net free funds due to a decline in noninterest-bearing deposits, investment in bank-owned life insurance, share repurchases and the impact of acquisitions. An increase in loan fees from a year ago partially offset these factors. Net interest income in the third quarter of 2007 increased from the second quarter of 2007 by $35 million (2.1 percent). Net interest income increased due to average earning assets growth of $2.6 billion while the net interest margin remained unchanged from the second quarter of 2007, at 3.44 percent. As expected, the tightening of credit spreads and changes in the deposit and other funding mix have moderated. Additionally, market expectations regarding interest rates have changed somewhat in light of recent liquidity disruptions in the capital markets and the Federal Reserve Bank’s decrease in short-term interest rates. Considering these factors, the Company continues to expect that the net interest margin will remain relatively stable throughout the remainder of the year consistent with previous management guidance.

Average loans for the third quarter of 2007 were higher than the second quarter of 2007 by $1.9 billion (1.3 percent), primarily reflecting growth in residential mortgages and total retail loans, driven by growth in average credit card balances and installment loans. Total commercial loans also grew modestly in the third quarter of 2007 compared with the second quarter of 2007. Total commercial real estate loans declined slightly from the second quarter of 2007, reflecting customer refinancing, a management decision to reduce condominium construction financing in selected markets and a slowdown in residential homebuilding impacting construction lending. Average investment securities in the third quarter of 2007 were $1.3 billion (3.3 percent) higher than the third quarter of 2006 driven primarily by an increase in the municipal securities portfolio, partially offset by a reduction in mortgage-backed assets.

Average total savings deposits increased year-over-year by $1.0 billion (1.9 percent) as a $2.5 billion increase (10.4 percent) in interest checking balances due to higher broker dealer, government and institutional trust balances was partially offset by a decline of $1.4 billion (4.5 percent) in average money market and savings balances, primarily within Consumer Banking. The overall decrease in average money market and savings balances year-over-year was principally the result of the Company’s deposit pricing decisions for money market products in relation to other fixed-rate deposit products offered. A portion of branch-based money market savings accounts have migrated to fixed-rate time certificates to take advantage of higher interest rates for these products. Average time certificates of deposit less than $100,000 were higher in the third quarter of 2007 than in the third quarter of 2006 by $723 million (5.2 percent) and time deposits greater than $100,000 declined by $1.3 billion (5.9 percent) over the same period, reflecting Company funding decisions. The year-over-year growth in time certificates less than $100,000 was due to consumer-based time deposits, reflecting customer migration to higher rate deposit products. (MORE)

Total average savings deposits had a slight increase of $449 million (.8 percent) from the second quarter of 2007. Average time deposits greater than $100,000 increased $877 million (4.3 percent) from the prior quarter. This change in average time deposits greater than $100,000 was primarily in government deposits.

The increase in noninterest income over the third quarter of 2006 was driven by strong organic fee-based revenue growth, offset somewhat by market conditions in the third quarter of 2007 adversely impacting valuations for certain trading securities and loans held for sale within a commercial real estate joint venture. Additionally, the third quarter of 2006 included a $32 million gain on the sale of equity interests in a card association. Credit and debit card revenue and corporate payment products revenue were higher in the third quarter of 2007 than the third quarter of 2006 by $29 million (14.1 percent) and $14 million (9.3 percent), respectively. The strong growth in credit and debit card revenue was primarily driven by an increase in (MORE)
  9. 9. U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 9 customer accounts and higher customer transaction volumes from a year ago. The corporate payment products revenue growth reflected organic growth in sales volumes and card usage and an acquired business. Merchant processing services revenue was higher in the third quarter of 2007 than the same quarter a year ago by $34 million (13.4 percent), primarily reflecting an increase in customers and sales volumes. Trust and investment management fees increased $26 million (8.5 percent) year-over-year due to core account growth and favorable market conditions. Deposit service charges grew modestly year-over-year by $3 million (1.1 percent) driven by increased transaction-related fees and the impact of continued growth in net new checking accounts. Additionally, deposit account-related revenue, traditionally reflected in this fee category, continued to migrate to yield-related loan fees as customers utilize new consumer products. Treasury management fees increased $7 million (6.3 percent) due to higher customer transaction volumes, account growth and pricing enhancements. Commercial products revenue increased $7 million (7.0 percent) year-over-year due to higher foreign exchange and syndication fees and commercial leasing revenue. Mortgage banking revenue increased $8 million (11.8 percent) due to an increase in mortgage servicing income and production gains partially offset by a change in the valuation of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) and related economic hedging activities. These favorable changes in fee-based revenue were partially offset by a decline in other income of $40 million (21.1 percent) compared with the third quarter of 2006. The reduction in other income reflected the $32 gain recognized in the third quarter of 2006 related to the sale of equity interests in a card association. The decline in other revenue also included market valuation losses of approximately $21 million, partially offset by an increase in revenue from investment in bank- owned life insurance programs. The third quarter of 2007 also included $7 million of net securities gains. Noninterest income was lower by $11 million (.6 percent) in the third quarter of 2007 compared with the second quarter of 2007. Trust and investment management fees and treasury management fees declined from the second quarter of 2007 by $11 million (3.2 percent) and $8 million (6.3 percent) respectively, due to seasonally higher tax filing fees and tax receipt processing volumes in the second quarter of 2007. In addition, other revenue declined by $19 million on a linked quarter basis, due primarily to capital markets conditions in the third quarter that resulted in valuation losses on certain trading securities and loans held for sale within a commercial real estate joint venture. Credit and debit card revenue increased $7 million (3.1 percent) due primarily to higher cash advance and other transactions fees. Corporate payment products revenue increased $7 million (4.5 percent), primarily reflecting seasonally higher sales volumes.

Noninterest expense in the third quarter of 2007 was lower than the second quarter of 2007 by $12 million (.7 percent), primarily due to seasonal changes in employee benefits expense, lower incentives and lower business integration costs. These increases were partially offset by higher net occupancy and equipment expense driven by business investments and seasonally higher utilities expense. Provision for Income Taxes The provision for income taxes for the third quarter of 2007 resulted in a tax rate on a taxable equivalent basis of 30.9 percent (effective tax rate of 30.2 percent) compared with 31.2 percent (effective tax rate of 30.7 percent) in the third quarter of 2006 and 30.9 percent (effective tax rate of 30.2 percent) in the second quarter of 2007. The reduction in the tax rate from the same quarter of the prior year primarily reflected investments in tax-exempt municipal securities and bank-owned life insurance, as well as incremental tax credits from affordable housing projects and other tax-advantaged investments.

The allowance for credit losses was $2,260 million at September 30, 2007, and at June 30, 2007, and was $2,256 million at September 30, 2006. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to period-end loans was 1.52 percent at September 30, 2007, compared with 1.55 percent at June 30, 2007, and 1.58 percent at September 30, 2006. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to nonperforming loans was 441 percent at September 30, 2007, compared with 503 percent at June 30, 2007, and 476 percent at September 30, 2006.

The increase in total net charge-offs from a year ago was due primarily to an anticipated increase in consumer charge-offs, primarily related to credit cards, and somewhat higher commercial loan net charge-offs. Bankruptcy levels declined substantially in 2006 as a result of changes in bankruptcy legislation that went into effect in late 2005. Commercial and commercial real estate loan net charge-offs increased modestly to $39 million in the third quarter of 2007 (.20 percent of average loans outstanding) compared with $38 million (.20 percent of average loans outstanding) in the second quarter of 2007 and $21 million (.11 percent of average loans outstanding) in the third quarter of 2006. Given the continuing stress in the homebuilding industry, the Company expects commercial and commercial real estate net charge-offs to continue to increase moderately over the next several quarters. Retail loan net charge-offs were $143 million in the third quarter of 2007 compared with $138 million in the second quarter of 2007 and $103 million in the third quarter of 2006. The increase in retail loan net charge-offs is a reflection of the 8.3 percent growth in the portfolio, including 26.9 percent growth in average credit card balances from a year ago. While retail loan net charge-offs increased from the second quarter of 2007 and from the third quarter of 2006, retail loan net charge-offs as a percent of average loans outstanding remained at 1.15 percent in the third quarter of 2007, the same as in the second quarter of 2007. This compares with a net charge-off ratio of .90 in the third quarter of 2006, which reflected lower credit losses in 2006 due to the beneficial impact of bankruptcy law changes. The Company anticipates higher delinquencies in the retail portfolios and that retail net charge-offs will increase moderately over the next several quarters. (MORE)

The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and other real estate was .43 percent at September 30, 2007, compared with .39 percent at June 30, 2007, and .40 percent at September 30, 2006. The change in nonperforming assets reflects higher levels of nonperforming loans resulting from stress in the mortgage lending industry and an increase in other real estate assets primarily representing residential mortgage loan foreclosures. Accruing loans 90 days or more past due increased to $451 million at September 30, 2007, compared with $376 million at June 30, 2007, and $295 million at September 30, 2006. Restructured loans that continue to accrue interest have increased from the third quarter of 2006, reflecting the impact of restructurings for residential mortgage customers in light of current economic conditions. The Company expects nonperforming assets to increase modestly over the next several quarters due to continued stress in residential mortgages and residential construction. (MORE)

These operating segments are components of the Company about which financial information is available and is evaluated regularly in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance. Noninterest expenses incurred by centrally managed operations or business lines that directly support another business line’s operations are charged to the applicable business line based on its utilization of those services primarily measured by the volume of customer activities, number of employees or other relevant factors. These allocated expenses are reported as net shared services expense within noninterest expense. Designations, assignments and allocations change from time to time as management systems are enhanced, methods of evaluating performance or product lines change or business segments are realigned to better respond to the Company’s diverse customer base. During 2007, certain organization and methodology changes were made and, accordingly, prior period results have been restated and presented on a comparable basis. Wholesale Banking offers lending, equipment finance and small-ticket leasing, depository, treasury management, capital markets, foreign exchange, international trade services and other financial services to middle market, large corporate, commercial real estate, and public sector clients. Wholesale Banking contributed $265 million of the Company’s net income in the third quarter of 2007, an 11.1 percent decrease from the same period of 2006 and a 4.7 percent decrease compared with the second quarter of 2007.

U.S. Bancorp Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results October 16, 2007 Page 19 decrease in Wholesale Banking’s third quarter of 2007 contribution from the same quarter of 2006 was the result of lower total net revenue (5.2 percent), higher total noninterest expense (5.3 percent) and an increase in the provision for credit losses from a year ago. The decline in total net revenue was due to lower net interest income and fee-based revenue. The decrease in net interest income was due to tighter credit spreads and a decline in average noninterest-bearing deposit balances as customers utilized their liquidity to fund business growth, partially offset by growth in average loan balances. Total noninterest income decreased due to market-related valuation losses, including trading securities and loans held for sale within a commercial real estate lending joint venture, and lower equity investment income, partially offset by stronger treasury management fees and commercial products revenue. Total noninterest expense increased due to higher compensation and benefits expense related to production-based incentives and business growth initiatives, including expanding the national corporate banking franchise and relationship management focus. Loan collection, lease residual and other related costs have also increased somewhat from a year ago. The unfavorable variance in the provision for credit losses was due to a $4 million increase in net charge-offs in the third quarter of 2007 compared with a year ago. The change in net charge-offs reflected fewer wholesale loan recoveries and an increase in gross charge-offs at this stage of the business cycle. Wholesale Banking’s contribution to net income in the third quarter of 2007 compared with the second quarter of 2007 was $13 million (4.7 percent) lower due to an unfavorable variance in total net revenue (4.3 percent), partially offset by a decrease in total noninterest expense and the provision for credit losses. Total net revenue was lower on a linked quarter basis due to seasonally higher fee-based income in the second quarter, principally related to treasury management fees from tax receipt processing, and the market-related valuation losses during the third quarter of 2007. These unfavorable variances were partially offset by an increase in commercial products revenue driven by stronger foreign currency fees, customer derivatives trading and loan syndication revenues. Total noninterest expense decreased from the second quarter of 2007 due to a decrease in tax receipt processing expenses that are seasonally higher in the second quarter of 2007. The provision for credit losses decreased on a linked quarter basis due to lower net charge-offs despite somewhat higher levels of nonperforming assets caused by stress in mortgage warehouse lending caused by recent liquidity disruption in the mortgage lending industry.

Consumer Banking contributed $455 million of the Company’s net income in the third quarter of 2007, a 4.0 percent decrease from the same period of 2006 and relatively flat on a linked quarter basis. Within Consumer Banking, the retail banking division contributed $420 million of the total contribution, a 5.2 percent decrease for the division on a year-over-year basis and a 2.1 percent decrease from the prior quarter. An increase in total net revenue for the retail banking division was offset by an increase in the provision for credit losses and growth in total noninterest expense compared with the same period of 2006. Net interest income for the retail banking division was flat year-over-year as an increase in yield-related loan fees was offset by narrowing loan spreads and lower deposit balances. Total noninterest income for the retail banking division increased 3.9 percent from a year ago due to growth in deposit service charges and other fee revenue, primarily due to insurance, asset sales and check cashing fees. Total noninterest expense in the third quarter of 2007 increased 3.0 percent for the division compared with the same quarter of 2006. Compensation and employee benefits expense increased related to recent acquisitions, branch expansion and other business investments. In addition, the line of business recognized higher costs for professional services related to revenue enhancement initiatives and credit-related costs associated with other real estate owned. The business line experienced a $33 million year-over-year increase in net charge-offs (56.9 percent), reflecting higher levels of retail charge-offs, driven by portfolio growth and stress in residential mortgages, home equity and other installment and consumer balances. Also, bankruptcies were generally lower in 2006 due to the lingering effects of changes in bankruptcy laws in late 2005. In the third quarter of 2007, the mortgage banking division’s contribution was $35 million, an increase of $4 million (12.9 percent) from the same period of 2006. This division’s total net revenue increased $14 million (15.2 percent) from a year ago due to an increase in noninterest income of $10 million (14.1 percent) primarily reflecting an increase in production gains and servicing income, partially offset by an adverse change in the net MSR valuation and the related derivatives utilized for managing interest rate valuation risk. In addition, the mortgage banking division increased net interest income by $4 million (19.0 percent) year-over-year driven by growth in loan production. Total noninterest expense for the mortgage banking division increased $8 million (18.6 percent) from the third quarter of 2006 primarily due to higher production levels from a year ago and servicing costs associated with other real estate owned and foreclosures.

The retail banking division’s contribution decreased by 2.1 percent on a linked quarter basis as an increase in noninterest expense and the provision for credit losses was partially offset by an increase in total net revenue. Total net revenue for the retail banking division increased $13 million (1.0 percent) due to increased net interest income related to higher loan balances and yield-related loan fees. Deposit service charges were relatively flat as customers utilized new consumer products where the benefit is recorded in yield-related loan fees. Total noninterest expense for the retail banking division increased 2.2% on a linked quarter basis primarily due to increased transaction processing expense and credit-related costs on other real estate owned. The provision for credit losses for the quarter reflected a $14 million increase in net charge-offs relative to the second quarter of 2007, driven primarily by retail net charge-offs. The contribution of the mortgage banking division increased $8 million from the second quarter of 2007 driven by an increase in total net revenue due to strong growth in net interest income related to loans held for sale balances and a favorable change in the valuation of MSRs including the impact of related economic hedging activities. Total noninterest expense of the mortgage banking division increased $4 million (8.5 percent) from the second quarter of 2007, driven by production processing levels. Wealth Management and Securities Services provides trust, private banking, financial advisory, investment management, retail brokerage services, insurance, custody and mutual fund servicing through five businesses: Wealth Management, Corporate Trust, FAF Advisors, Institutional Trust & Custody and Fund Services. Wealth Management and Securities Services contributed $165 million of the Company’s net income in the third quarter of 2007, an 11.5 percent increase over the same period of 2006 and a 3.5 percent decrease from the second quarter of 2007. The growth in the business line’s contribution in the third quarter of 2007 over the same quarter of 2006 was the result of core account fee growth and improved equity market conditions relative to a year ago. Net interest income was unfavorably impacted year-over-year by changes in deposit pricing and tightening credit spreads, partially offset by earnings from deposit growth. Total noninterest expense was flat compared with the same quarter of 2006. The decrease in the business line’s contribution in the third quarter of 2007 compared with the second quarter of 2007 was primarily due to the seasonal effect of higher tax-related fees in the second quarter of 2007. Payment Services includes consumer and business credit cards, stored-value cards, debit cards, corporate and purchasing card services, consumer lines of credit, ATM processing and merchant processing.

Strong growth in operating income of 13.1 percent from a year ago was partially offset by an expected increase in the provision for credit losses (35.1 percent). An increase in total net revenue year-over-year was due to higher total noninterest income (11.1 percent) and net interest income (12.8 percent), reflecting growth in higher yielding retail loan balances, partially offset by the margin impact of recent acquisitions and growth in corporate payment card balances. All payment processing revenue categories benefited from account growth, higher transaction volumes and business expansion initiatives. The growth in total noninterest expense year-over-year primarily reflected new business initiatives, including costs associated with marketing programs, transaction processing and acquisitions, as well as higher collection costs. The increase in the provision for credit losses was driven by an increase in net charge-offs of $26 million year- over-year reflecting portfolio growth and the favorable prior year effects of changes in bankruptcy laws in late 2005. The increase in Payment Services’ contribution in the third quarter of 2007 from the second quarter of 2007 was due to higher total net revenue (3.8 percent), partially offset by higher total noninterest expense (1.8 percent). The provision for credit losses remained relatively flat. Total net revenue was higher due to an 11.4 percent increase in net interest income, driven by strong growth in retail credit card balances and favorable loan yields, as well as a 2.0 percent increase in total noninterest income primarily from credit card fees and seasonally higher corporate payments transaction sales volumes. An increase in total noninterest expense was primarily due to the timing of marketing and professional services costs from retail payment systems and other business expansion initiatives. The increase also reflected slightly higher processing expenses related to merchant processing volumes. Treasury and Corporate Support includes the Company’s investment portfolios, funding, capital management and asset securitization activities, interest rate risk management, the net effect of transfer pricing related to average balances and the residual aggregate of those expenses associated with corporate activities that are managed on a consolidated basis. Treasury and Corporate Support recorded net income of $15 million in the third quarter of 2007, compared with net income of $30 million in the third quarter of 2006 and a net loss of $7 million in the second quarter of 2007. Net interest income improved $17 million in the current quarter from the third quarter of 2006 reflecting an increase in asset rates and volumes, partially offset by the mix of higher cost wholesale funding to support earning assets growth. Total noninterest income decreased $27 million due principally to the $32 million gain from the sale of equity interests in a (MORE)

Total noninterest expense increased $18 million year-over-year primarily reflecting an increase in costs related to investments in affordable housing and other tax-advantaged projects. Net income in the third quarter of 2007 was higher than the second quarter of 2007 due primarily to a decrease in total noninterest expense. Total noninterest expense decreased by $27 million primarily due to lower personnel, operating and business integration expenses.
